Evelyn Waugh chose the name Labels for his first travel book because, he said, the places he visited were already ‘fully labelled’ in people’s minds. Yet even the most seasoned traveller could not fail to be inspired by Waugh’s quintessentially English attitude and by his eloquent and frequently outrageous wit. From Europe to the Middle East and North Africa, from Egyptian porters and Italian priests to Maltese sailors and Moroccan merchants – as he cruises around the Mediterranean his pen cuts through the local colour to give a highly entertaining portrait of the Englishman abroad.
‘A travel book totally free of any Mediterranean mystique… Waugh’s observations are totally honest, wise as well as clever, and practical.’
